Ben Borash (’20) and Dr. Ben Pauli (biology) recently published a paper in the journal Human Wildlife Interactions (link here). The paper, a product of Ben Borash’s senior thesis research, identified the environmental characteristics that make human interactions with rattlesnakes more or less likely in Winona County. In addition, Borash and Pauli created a predictive map of areas in Winona County that were more prone to interactions with rattlesnakes that would require intervention (such as the relocation of the snake).
